So, Famitsu just uploaded a bunch of new screenshots for Bayonetta 2 (from one of their previous issues, don't remember which one). Looks like Siliconera got some details on multiplayer (apparently from the Famitsu article).

4Gamer.net has the full-size version of those screens, if you're interested. And yes, there's a Bayonetta 1 screenshot among all the Bayo 2 stuff ;)

I still don't understand how that multiplayer/betting system works.

Is it relegated to certain fights or is the whole game co-oppable?

My Wii U is ready. I hope Platinum and Capcom continue to make these over the top combo heavy action games.

I used to hate the Bayonetta Art Design of the world, then, after having played it... it's awesome. Don't know why!

does the game run at 60fps?
Pretty sure it does, which makes it really impressive. E3 demo was smooth as heck, at least for me.

I'm sure Digital Foundry would find the game actually runs at 59FPS during some parts or something, though :p

From the looks of that last screenshot, whatever Halos you add into the pot gets a multiplier added onto it so the potential gains are massively larger than the actual losses instead of the typical "double or nothing" which means that there's a pretty good incentive to hop into co-op every so often for that brief boost you need for that next upgrade. I'm still not clear whether or not the players are betting against each other or if it's a shared reward based on whether or not you both are able to complete the Verse (which may be possible, since both characters look like they have only base health and magic to work with).

Also, looking at the top right of the screen shows a tarot card similar to the ones that represent the Verses with a counter showing "9/52" on it. I guess this means that co-op players will have a pretty good choice of which fights they'd like to partake in. Though 52 Verses seems like a pretty shallow number compared to the first Bayonetta, so it's likely not indicative of the number of Verses in the final game. Hopefully they cherry-picked the best Verses to put into co-op.

Hopefully these little revelations means we can learn a bit more about the multiplayer during Comic Con, Gamescom or TGS.

Sometimes i get depressed but then I remember Bayonetta 2 is a thing and my mood changes for the better :)
I know, right? The cold, harsh world is crushing the life out of you and then you remember, "Oh, wait, Nintendo brought Bayonetta back from the dead, gave her back to Platinum, kept the game in development all through their dark days of the Wii U's early life, and now it's actually close to coming out and it comes with the first game packed in for free. Maybe life's not so bad" :p

Seeing the 1P and 2P icons brings back memories of the arcades. Love it.
So I haven't followed the Bayonetta 1 deal since. Is it included or not and at what price? I'm in Europe.

There's a special edition including both games. But we don't know the price of either version, so...

They made Bayonetta look so pretty in this game, so much better than the old design!
